It looks modern In UX, this is a terrible reason to do anything. Traditional More empty space on the title bar means it can be easily accessed with the cursor. For large desktop screens, this is a blessing in not needing to slowly aim your cursor towards available space to move a window. "Users are familiar with this format" Integrated Less space ...

I'm going to attempt to solve this. Here is what I proposed: Proposed Sub Navigations download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups You could use a combination of direct links and a drop down menu to maintain consistency.

I Agree with Daniel Brown when he says that "it's important that you know the persona you're developing for" Case in point: I am working on a similar problem, though my end users manipulate hierarchical data to verify its quality before importing it to a database so calls to action are quite different.This being said, I think the solution I am working on ...

Your hierarchy reminds me of the nested hierarchy of parent and nodes in iOS development(Xcode) interface. I have a windows machine and this is not to compare the two but from a pure user experience point of view, I find checkboxes quite confusing when there are too many children in the list. If you could highlight the selected child after selection, it's ...

Suggestion 1: Anticipatory design: I would recommend pushing the user to one of the selections based on the data you get from your users. Which one is the hottest zone. Suggestion 2: Matrix Solution: You can present the user with the first 2 option he has in your platform. Blue pill: Results Red pull: Reports + a little description for each.

How about putting each section inside a dropdown menu so only one section show sin full at a time, it will reduce clutter drastically and allow the user to find what he/she needs fairly quickly

Based on the UI attached, I'm assuming that you are toying with the idea of progressive disclosure; meaning some form of user activation to reveal the items that are available. There are circumstances whereby progressive disclosure would fit slightly better, such as form filling, check out process etc. In this case (a menu), a progressive approach would ...
